Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness - Review

Updated: May 10, 2022

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, directed by Sam Raimi, is the movie about making tough moral decisions regarding doing what benefits you and what benefits others. The movie stars Benedict Cumberbatch, as Doctor Strange, Elizabeth Olsen, as Wanda Maximoff, and Xochitl Gomez, as America Chavez. The movie is about Wanda trying to get America's unique ability to travel through the multiverse, to help her get to a universe where she can be with her kids. Unfortunately this would require killing America to actually get her powers and it is up to Doctor Strange to protect America.


I am a HUGE Spider-Man fan, and though I personally like No Way Home better, and can acknowledge that this is the better of the two movies. Sam Raimi skillfully added his expertise in horror into what is essentially a family movie PERFECTLY. *Chef's kiss* I was SOOO hyped seeing John Krasinski as Reed Richards and Sir Patrick Stewart reprising his Professor Charles Xavier (but in his iconic yellow chair). It was great story telling and how they came to resolve the problem not by killing Wanda but by showing her what she's become blindly acting on her ambitions. Marvel Studios did a good job, as usual, with creating a villain; they made the villains motivations understandable. I think this is a great strategy, probably not why it's their strategy but still great, because its represents real life so well. So many people who love these movies think themselves to be the heroes while their actions and motivations would lead them to more likely be villains.
